We are currently restoring the largest selection of 1991 Final Edition Grand Wagoneers in the country and just added to our collection is this remarkable find. This amazing ’91 Hunter Green Metallic Wagoneer is the second lowest mileage Final Edition ever in our extensive inventory and by far our lowest mile 1991 Hunter Green Wagoneer with only 56,200 original miles. That translates to just over 1800 miles per year driven over its 31 year history. We need not remind Wagoneer enthusiasts that 1991 was the final year for the Wagoneer with the lowest production numbers of any model year ever. Add to that the ultra rare one year only offered Hunter Green and this is investment grade. A truly rare vehicle in the annals of American automotive history.
In addition to the low mileage this Grand was a single family Wagoneer passed from its original owner to his favorite niece. Her uncle was a Wagoneer enthusiast -that’s all he drove- and he owned many during his lifetime. His last Wagoneer purchase came in 1991 when he purchased two- and paid cash for both according to his niece. One became his daily driver which according to her he drove it into the ground , but this Hunter Green edition was his “occasional driver” – hence the low mileage. From the time she was a little girl our owner dreamed of owning a Wagoneer and since her uncle had no children this amazing vehicle passed to her. She has cherished this Grand but felt that the timing was right to pass it on to the next owner. Letting go was not easy and in the glove box is a hand written letter from her to the next owner with some of the information in this write-up plus other details she wanted to share about her uncle and her Wagoneer experience. We were honored that she chose us to refurbish this amazing Grand Wagoneer and to have the opportunity to find it the next wonderful home.
Carfax confirms no odometer issues on this low mile very special Wagoneer.
The frame off restoration is extensive, from a newly remanufactured original spec 360ci V8 engine to a whole host of other cosmetic and mechanical/electrical works with the highlights detailed below:
Why buy from a Grand Wagoneer specialist?
Our entire focus is on Grand Wagoneers and we know these unique vehicles inside and out. When you purchase a Classic Gentleman Wagoneer it has been thoroughly inspected and works completed by professional mechanics, some with over forty years of Wagaoneer experience. We purchase fine example Jeeps from a variety of sources including other dealers and private parties. We are often told by the seller, “My Jeep is excellent and needs nothing” however, being in this profession, we know to expect and plan for a great deal of sorting. Remember the average age of these vehicles is over thirty years old and even with loving care many the cosmetics and mechanical parts have aged and worn accordingly. When a Classic Gentleman Grand Wagoneer arrives at your home, it is a special occasion and the Grand will be in beautiful condition. Yes, our sales are as-is, but as you will see from our detailed document files that your Grand has been looked after carefully. Our goal is to see that the joy and enthusiasm of Grand Wagoneer ownership begins immediately with your purchase and that it will be there for years to come.
Still, and here is the most honest paragraph you have perhaps ever seen from a restoration house/dealer, in some ways these Jeeps were terrible even when they were new. Sometimes we wonder if automotive engineering was more of a hobby with Jeep executives. For example, a Grand Wagoneer was the very last vehicle produced in America still fitted with a carburetor. The factory installing an ancient artifact like a carburetor to these Grands is a perfect example of Wagoneers being more primitive than other vehicles of the same model years. Now we automatically upgrade and modernize each of our Grands with MODERN FUEL INJECTION, eliminating the troublesome carburetor and therefore also eliminating the next owner having to constantly hector his local Jeep service advisor to adjust the carburetor. But, in most every other way, we can’t change the method these were built by the factory. In many respects the manufacturer used outdated technology and manufacturing methods and as a restorer, we will always be compromised by that circumstance. Did you know you can remove the front grill from a final year 1991 Grand Wagoneer and behind it still see the round cut out holes for the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer headlights? Those are just two examples above to illuminate the discussion. Therefore, please understand you will do more maintenance and servicing of a vintage Grand Wagoneer than a modern piece, even one we have restored. That is just a truth, fellow enthusiast. If you don’t have the un-excitability and tolerance for that, then let us say to you candidly, don’t buy one. But let us also remind you that it is indeed that old school style and looks of a Grand Wagoneer that have made them so ever popular today.
